'Brink' exhibition in Persistence Works Gallery July 28th- Aug 25th

We are delighted to introduce the next exhibition in our Persistence Works Gallery - 'Brink' from Sheffield Institution of Arts.

This is an exhibition showing work produced through the Fine Art Bridge Scheme (FABS) which supports early career artists to nurture new talent in Sheffield. FABS is a mentoring and residency scheme specifically aimed at supporting recent graduates, allowing them to work closely with local arts organisations to build their experience and confidence within Sheffield's visual arts community.​ This show brings together so many Sheffield art organisations and artists, it is very exciting that it will be shown here at Yorkshire Artspace as well as Sheffield Institute of Arts.

This exhibition showcases the work of the 2017-18 FABS artists: Alex Mooney and Hannah Lamb are working with Bloc Projects and are aving been exploring a range of arts activities including gallery education programmes, curation, project management, setting up arts organisations and working within the voluntary sector.

Alex Phillips and Mattie Pugh are hosted by Site Gallery who are supporting the artists to explore how they can work in different communities, in diverse sites, and in unusual spaces through their public outreach activities such as ‘The Society of Explorers’ and ‘On the Road’ programmes.

Lea Torp Nielsen and Alex White are in residences at Museums Sheffield, working with the collections at Weston Park Museum and The Ruskin Collection to develop individual responses.

Ashley Wallis, Bron Wilkinson, Norman Anderson and Ashley Pearce are hosted by S1 Artspace, where they have studio spaces to develop their art practice during FABS.


FABS forms part of Making Ways, a new programme supported by Sheffield Culture Consortium through Arts Council England to showcase, celebrate and develop the exceptional contemporary visual art produced in the city.
